There was also a hardware/software solution for the Amiga platform, found on Aminet in the disk/bakup dir, VBackup016.lha.

 "Some days ago I got a message from the german distributor of the "VideoBackupSystem" (Performance Peripherals Europe). They told me, that they think, VBackup looks so similar to the VBS (especialy due to the usage of the same hardware) that VBackup is a violation of the VBS copyright."

I may have the older file that has the schematics & software still archived somewhere.
